Oh God these were ugly! You can still find plenty of them (yellowed) in your local thrift store for purchase-though I don't know who the heck would want them! It's really amusing when my kids watch Sesame Street videos from that era and the characters are "totally" in style with their acid-washed jeans and white hightop sneaks-ugh!

Loved them back then...they were so high they were covered everything just about up to your boobs, awesome coloring and dont forget how much better they looked with extra holes and rips in them...and THEN they were super popular with big huge rips with tights or something worn under them...i can honestly say, i really dont miss them lol

I had a pair in Jr. High. They were so cool looking. Some designer for JC Pennys has brought them back, but some things just need to stay in the 80s.

I had everything acid washed in the mid to late 80's. My jeans, skirts, and jackets! I hate it now and can never see myself wearing it again.

I had a pair that I folded over & then rolled up at the bottom w/my Reebok High Tops! The waists were up to our necks & they made out butts looks flat & weird & kinda saggy all at once! LOLZ! I loved the blue acid washed & had pink too. I did not like the black or grey acid washed. I had a jacket to match too. I wore them w/my turtle necks!

I had a few pairs of acid washed jeans, my fave was acid washed black. I also had an acid washed wallet, which I just came across the other day. Mint.

Don't like acid wash that much, but the ones Buck wore on Married With Children were pretty cool. They're not the same today.

My mom STILL has AND EVEN WEARS!!! her acid wash jeans from the 80's. Those pants are so ugly and seeing them back in stores today makes me sick. I'm so glad I was born in '89.

I had a pair EXACTLY like the ones pictured! Zippers and all...they were a size 1 and they fit me perfectly so I LOVED them! I'd wear them with a coral-colored shirt and Reebok tennis shoes!

The acid-washed clothes were part of the same trend that brought us "distressed" leather jackets to give a kind of rugged, worn look to clothes. I remember seeing garishly acid-washed jeans in the mid-80s on people with 80s asymmetric, part-shaved haircuts with part of the hair bleached bright white and part of it darker colors. If you look into where this stuff originated, in the 80s trends usually originated either on the streets of London or in some postpunk "subculture" (as they called the in the 80s), and I first remember seeing a style similar to this on California hardcore punks in the early 80s, only it was hand-done on Levis 501-style jeans.

I never had any of these. I like my jeans dark--the darker the better. I never bought into this look, and now I see them coming back. I particularly dislike those jeans that look partially acid washed/distressed. Horrible!!

I found a pair of black acid washed jeans in a thrift shop and it was in mint condition. I cut it up and made a "memory" quilt out of it along with several pairs of old jeans. Remember Jordache? I don't see them around anymore, not even in thrift shops.

I friggin love these! I LOVE the way my butt looks (i'm African American) and the high waist greatly flatters my small one ;)
